Hey Everybody!!

Just wanted to introduce myself! As I stumbled upon this website, and I am soo glad I did!! It’s nice to be able to read about other Dobie's and get great advice!!

A little about my baby! His name is Deogie... he is 15 months old. I adopted him a year ago, after he was brought in to the local SPCA by their Ambulance. I fortunately, have a great friend who works there, that has known that I have always wanted a Dobie, so she saved him for me! Deogie was there for a month, recovering from the abuse that he had endured. They had to drill into his head, to relieve the pressure from his brain, he also had to get stitches throughout his body and recover from parasites.

Ever since I brought him home, you can just tell he is soo happy to have his forever home. He is the sweetest boy and you would NEVER know he was beaten. He is great with kids, and my entire family, just a real lover! Unfortunately, he suffered some brain damage in the mix of his abuse... he is a little slow at learning things, and will just fall over sometimes out of no where... but the doctors said, aside from that, he is a healthy growing boy!!

He is definitely spoiled! He goes to Doggy Daycare everyday while I am at work, and comes home and plays and passes out! It’s like my kid! :)

I am so glad to find a community, that loves and appreciates Dobie’s as much as I do! I look forward to reading most posts!!

Thank you!!!!
Stephanie

Stephanie,

Thank you so much for taking a rescue in and loving him as much as you do. It makes me sad to think of what he had to endure before you adopted him. It sounds as if you love him to pieces and take very good care of him.

Looking forward to hearing more about him and seeing his photos.

What a horrible start your little boy had, how can people be so cruel, puppies are so trusting they don't deserve to be treated badly.   I am so glad he found you and is now in his forever home.   Just wanted to say welcome, its a great place for information on dobes from people that know and love the breed.

Thanks Guys!!

Yes he is a loving boy!!! Anybody who meets him, after i tell them about his story, is soo shocked at how loving and sweet he is. 

@ Control Freak - yes he is a lucky boy.  I found a local "academy" that trained him, and now he goes there daily for daycare.  Which works AMAZING, because he gets to be around other dogs, and he plays all day long.. He comes home pooped and just wants to snuggle!

Its crazy the things we do for our animals! Most my friends joke around with me, saying if I how treat/spoil him is any sign of how I will treat my real children, than I will be a great mother!! LOL

Welcome to the forum!!  I am so glad that you and Deogie found each other, I hate to hear what he had to endure before you got him, but I am so very happy that he has his Forever Home now, with someone who loves him and treats him like the precious gift he is!!  It breaks my heart to think someone can be that cruel to an animal, all our animals want is to make us happy.  They stand beside us no matter what, will defend us if needed, cheer us up when we're sad, make us laugh when we don't want to, and make our lives better.  The least we can do is the same for them.  Sorry guys, I get a little windy sometimes!!

Thank you soo much for rescuing a boy like this. A lot of people would completely pass over a dog with possible brain damage. It's people like you that give me faith in the otherwise cruel masses of human beings.

Welcome and Thank you for taking him in.  I can't believe what people can do to animals sometimes.   So glad he has found a wonderful home to live in and he knows it too :)

Thanks from me too for saving this boy!! He sounds so sweet, can't wait till we see pictures.

My whippet also had the problem of just standing around and then suddenly falling over, turned out he had spinal issues from being electrocuted when he was with his previous owner and then he got bit in the hip by a neighbor dog,  his spine was affected. we got him when he was 2, he went in for spinal treatments every month for 8 years, now I realize if we had had an acupuncturist which we do now, he would have had less pain and more play.....it really is rewarding to adopt dogs who have had such a sad beginning as Deogie, seeing them blossom with love and care makes all the tears worth it. (my brother in law had a rottie named Deogie cause the kids couldn't say dog right they spelled it D-O-G when they called her; so she became Deogie never thought I would hear of another one)

Kudos again and post those pics!!!
